How To Make A Pneumatic Halloween Prop

If you’ve never built a pneumatic prop you’re a member of a very exclusive club that includes yours truly. And to paraphrase Groucho Marx, you probably don’t want to be a member of any club that would have me as a member.

With that in mind, Chris from MonstarCraft Productions has a great tutorial that not only covers the basics of pneumatics, but also walks you through the build of his grave popper prop.  It’s his first foray into pneumatic prop building and he’s done a great job of detailing what is needed to get the job done, how to make all the connections, and then goes into further detail on what is actually taking place to make the prop work.  It’s a really well organized tutorial that’s loaded with detail and is a great launching pad for those looking to get started with pneumatic props.
